WEXFORD OPERA FESTIVAL - Maria De Rudenz, Gaetano Donizetti



WEXFORD OPERA FESTIVAL - Maria De Rudenz, Gaetano Donizetti


Maria de Rudenz

Gaetano Donizetti (1797–1848)


Opera in 3 acts | Libretto by Salvadore Cammarano

Sung in Italian


Maria de Rudenz has been described as ‘perhaps the darkest of Donizetti’s tragedies’, which is saying something and may account in part for the opera’s long-standing neglect. This Autumn’s Irish première is the latest in a series of important Donizetti revivals at Wexford.

It is surely no coincidence that Wexford Festival Opera’s lifetime has overlapped with Donizetti’s reversal of fortune – the composer who 65 years ago was all but written off as intellectually disreputable has now regained his rightful place in the operatic canon.
